 Great Courses DVD Series
The World Was Never the Same:
 Events that Changed History
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Litchfield Community Center
Cost: Free
Great Course DVD Lecture Series
with Prof. J. Rufus Fears, PhD
*Come to one-Come to all*
History is made and defined by landmark events?EUR"moments that
irrevocably changed the course of human civilization. While many of us
are taught that anonymous social, political, and economic forces are the
driving factors behind events of the past, acclaimed historian and
award-winning Professor J. Rufus Fears believes that it's individuals,
acting alone or together, who alter the course of history. These events
 have given us: spiritual and political ideas, catastrophic battles and wars,
scientific and technological advances, world leaders both influential
and monstrous, and cultural works of unparalleled beauty. Without them,
 human history as we know it today would be shockingly unfamiliar. In short,
because of these events, our world would never be the same again.

Such is the approach of The World Was Never the Same: Events That C
hanged History, a captivating new course in which Professor Fears
EUR"a master storyteller and one of the most popular instructors on
our Great Courses faculty?EUR"provides you with 36 of the most important
and definitive events in the history of the world. It's an intriguing and
engaging tour of thousands of years of human history, from the creation
 of the Code of Hammurabi (1750 B.C.) to the Battle of Lexington
(April 19, 1775), to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech
 (August 28, 1963), and beyond. And it's a chance for you to learn new insights
about world history at the hands of an engaging historian.
36 Lectures include: 30 minutes each
